I'd be willing to bet you just have a loose connection . . .Anyway, I’ll poke at it some time and see if there is a loose connection or something.
I understand perfectly your comment about dropping the electrical tape. The black hole in my hybrid currently holds a 1/4" drive 6" extension with a 10mm socket attached.Ok, boys and girls, let's learn from Mr Camfused's mistakes:
1) Using zip cord wire is not a good idea. It was too thick to fit into the connector (I thought it was going in but it was not). So, I soldered a piece of a regular-sized paper clip, about 3/4 inch, on the end of the wires. It fit in all the way in the connector, and is a perfect, snug fit. The wire for a large paper clip was too thick, btw.
2) Be careful where you put stuff and don't drop your roll of electrical tape down in front of the radiator. Took me 5 minutes to barely get my arm in there to get it out!
So, works fine now. I did two separate test drives in the hood, and a 58 mile round trip to hike at a state park (before it might close down). No error messages, and no noise. Once you go no noise, you will not go back! The car is now working like it should, IMHO.
Thanks all for the help with this.
My OCD would cause me great harm leaving that down there. Its not hard to drop the panel to retrieve it.I understand perfectly your comment about dropping the electrical tape. The black hole in my hybrid currently holds a 1/4" drive 6" extension with a 10mm socket attached.
Is there a part number and Price for the Speaker
I'll Give you $50-$60 for your effortsSorry to revive a thread that hasn't had any activity in a while; I wasn't sure I wanted to start a new one on this subject. A while back in managermans' thread, someone mentioned installing a switch to control the choir to be able to quickly turn it on/off. I've kinda started down that road too, with the goal of creating a OEM fitting, easily removable, waterproof solution. So far I've gotten a waterproof SPDT switch which I've gotten installed in a small IP65 (If you believe the seller) enclosure. I have the socket connector kit that would go to the speaker on order, and I already have the kit that connects to the car side. Once I have all the parts I can solder/splice the circuits together.
I'll admit this has become more of a pet project due to boredom than anything else. Is anyone interested in something like this?
